How Their Gardens Grow: Marvin and Bridgette Maldonado

Local chefs show off their personal edible landscapes.

The pandemic put a halt to public garden tours, including the popular Edible Garden Tour that typically takes place every September. So we decided to put on our own virtual tour of farm-to-fork landscapes, focusing on gardens tended by some of the region’s leading chefs and restaurateurs.

Marvin and Bridgette Maldonado, owners of Federalist Public House, gather with their kids, Rome, Levi and Miles, in the backyard of their century-old Carmichael farmhouse. The garden furnishes the restaurant with heirloom tomatoes, basil and tomatillos.
